Link Redirect: Error

This utility creates short links like "fq2.zwit.org" that will redirect to the given address. The database has entries. Please do not abuse this free service - I will simply remove links in response to any valid complaint.

This is one of many link shorteners. Two of the larger ones are goo.gl and bit.ly - a quick search will find many more. I have added features over the years to reduce abuse, including Google's Safe Browsing Lookup API in August 2011 (links are checked both before the short link is created and before any redirection is made) and Google's reCAPTCHA in April 2013 (require a human to create a link).

Error: finding stored link 299g

The perl script and template behind for this system are available. Please contact me with any comments, improvements or patches. I use the [link] JavaScript bookmark for quick shortcuts, even with the reCAPTCHA in place.
